1. Forty years ago this month, these two were at it again in theatres across the pond and stateside. Dracula A.D. 1972 was, shall we say, not Hammer’s finest hour. Indeed, it was a harbinger of the company’s twilight, what with this entry being a less than graceful leap at getting all hip and with it. You know, Dracula and Van Helsing hobnobbing with the Now Generation, making the scene and such like.

    Yet here they are in a candid off-camera moment, lacing on the Victorian garb and just owning effortless dandyism, never mind that absurd script. Not an issue, really, since The Man With the Golden Gun and The Wickerman are just around the corner for Lee, and Star Wars is a few more clicks down the road for Cushing. Nice work if you can get it, this 19th-century cosplay.
